Good afternoon! Cloudy and 36 degrees in Delmar. There is a west-northwest breeze at 13 mph. After an extended warm period the next few days will be cloudy, with some snow and much colder weather. The skies will clear Tuesday around 3 pm but continued cold is expected.

This afternoon will continue to have on and off rain and snow, mainly after 2pm. Not real nice weather. Cloudy, with a high of 36 degrees at 1pm. Temperatures will continue to drop throughout the evening. 10 degrees below normal. West wind around 14 mph, with gusts as high as 24 mph. Chance of precipitation is 70%. Total daytime snow accumulation of less than a half inch possible. Last year, partly sunny with a high around 56. Very different then today. The record high of 72 was set in 1991. There was 3.4 inches of snow back in 1961.

The sun will set at 4:28 pm with dusk around 4:58 pm, which is 42 seconds earlier than yesterday. Today will have 9 hours and 33 minutes of daylight, a decrease of 1 minutes and 54 seconds over yesterday.

Tonight will snow likely, mainly before 8pm. Cloudy, with a low of 30 degrees at 4am. Typical for tonight. West wind 15 to 18 mph, with gusts as high as 32 mph. Chance of precipitation is 60%. New snow accumulation of 1 to 2 inches possible. One year ago, partly cloudy with a low around 28. The record low of 7 occurred back in 1879.

The past 24 hours I’ve been unpacking and recovering from my trip. Somehow the trip just seemed so exhausting. The nights were long and I was constantly running from place to place, setting up and tearing down campsites, especially in the dark. While I stayed at the Finger Lakes National Forest and the East Otto State Forest for two nights, the rest of the time I was setting up and taking down camp. To make matters more complicated I set up a tent nearly every day.

I continue to struggle updating my blog without my laptop, but I see that the Lenovo Laptop Flex 4 I’ve been looking at is on sale for $500. It’s the best price I’ve seen in a while, and while maybe there are better deals for black Friday, I think I may just go with it now. Based on what I’ve read, it should mostly work with Linux out of the box. But I want to research a bit further — the 256 GB SSD drive will be fast, but it will mean I have to store some of my files on the portable hard drive. But I guess that’s fine. I really would like to be back in business on being able to fully update my blog.

There are 5 weeks until Christmas when the sun will be setting at 4:28 pm with dusk at 5:00 pm. The average high temperature is 33 degrees, with a record high of 66 in 1889. At that point the days will be starting to get longer and we are almost to the coldest time of the year — which happens in early January.
